| | Re: What is the trick to surround loops?
those are the instructions I learnes from and haven't had any problems. I cut my ribbon a half inch longer than the length of the ribbon I am using on my boutique bow. It could be the ribbon you are using. I pretty much only use schiff and offray because I like how stiff it is. The stiffer ribbons also work a lot better than the thinner cheaper ribbons when making the boutique bows. My suggestion would be to try with some different ribbon and see if it turns out any different. Good luck!
